“The success of Emerson College is due in no small part to your talent and toil,” President Lee Pelton told staff members. “You play a vital role here, and I truly appreciate all that you do. I salute each and every one of you, especially those who are receiving long-term recognition awards.”

“Let’s work together to further enhance our community and achieve even greater heights in the years to come,” Pelton said.

Staff members who have worked at Emerson for 25 years were also recognized, as well as those who have worked 20, 15, 10, and 5 years.
